Pink rose smells like perfume

And like grape juice

It is blush and sweet colour

I brush the petals on my cheek

They feel feathery and furry

Alliums shaped like a crystal with spikes

Like a cactus

It is round as round as a door handle

It reminds me of a monkey puzzle game

I had as a kid

I don’t play it anymore

I prefer to watch Glee or go on my iPad

I smell the mint

It reminds me of mint cake I smell the basil

It reminds me of Basil Brush…


The herbs are grassy

And emerald colour

The black beauty poppies

Smell of beetroot, cabbage

Beauty And The Beast!

The red poppies are the colour of a blush

Ruby and flaming

Sweet peas smell like rosemary

Sweet peas as white as a seagull

Sweet peas as dark as my sleepover bag

Poppies are delicate and fragile

Sometimes I feel delicate and fragile

Because I am Daddy Lee’s little girl

He feels upset when I feel sad

And that’s just the way it is

The poppy is red

Like the colour when I am blushing

Air plant

Dry and spiky

Barbed and sawtooth

Hairy roots like Daddy’s hairy legs

Giant cheese plant leaf

Like a fan blowing a windy breeze

Shiny leaf

Bottle swamp green

I might get wrapped up in the leaf and shout
